The Master’s degree course provides students with the knowledge and the competences required to protect and promote human rights in multi-level governance contexts, locally to internationally. Students develop the capabilities and skills necessary to analyse, assess and manage complex political and socio-economic phenomena and their impact on the fundamental rights of all persons, mainly the most vulnerable ones.
The scientific and value-based paradigm adopted is rooted in the principles of the international law of human rights, according to a trans-national and trans-cultural approach. The course is inherently multi-disciplinary and nurtures students’ interdisciplinary abilities.
The normal duration of the course is two years and requires 120 university credits (or CFUs). The Master degree in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance will be awarded upon completion of the course. All teaching courses are taught in English.
